The Conspiracy Wiki

The Roswell conspiracy concerns a top secret incident that happened near Roswell, New Mexico on July 4th, 1947. The spurious comments by USG officials to the Associated Press to identify the object as a "flying disc" to a "weather balloon", to a secret project Mogul balloon, has frustrated the American public. Brig. Gen. Thomas J. DuBose, USAF (470A), documented in an affidavit on 16 September 1991 that “the weather balloon explanation for the material was a cover story to divert attention of the press.”[1] Because of this affidavit, the Roswell conspiracy will not go away.


The UFO waves of early 1947, followed by the incident at Roswell posed national security concerns for the United States. The National Security Act of 1947 was signed into law by President Truman on July 26, 1947. By September 18, the U.S. National Military Establishment reorganized the departments of war and intelligence agencies, so that NSC, CIA and DoD were formed. The United Kingdom also faced the same security concerns and formed its Ministry of Defence (MOD) that same year in 1947.[2] UFO waves were not limited to the United States, but were experienced world wide based on UFO studies conducted by the CIA from the period of 1947 to 1990.[3] The UFO problem still persists today based on DNI's 25 June 2021 Preliminary Assessment on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena that is observed over military installations. With all the state-of-the-art tracking and surveillance, USG continues to deny what the small percentage of unexplained UFOs are. [4]

In 1995, USAF produced a 1,000 page report to explain that Roswell was part of Project MOGUL.[5]

In July 2023, The House Oversight Committee held a hearing concerning the testimony of former intelligence officer, David Grusch, who claimed that USG has in its possession “intact and partially intact” extraterrestrial craft and that non-human “biologics” were found along with the recovered crafts. Congressman Tim Burchett, TN asked Mr. Grusch if anyone had been “murdered” as part of government efforts to cover-up information. Grusch did not deny the notion.[6]


Maj. Edwin D. Easley (AO 418034) ensured that all sites at Roswell were sanitized.

Statement by Beverly Bean née Brown in 1989 concerning her father Sgt. Melvin E. Brown (AO 6578751): “He said he had to stand guard duty outside a hangar where a crashed flying saucer was stored, and that his commanding officer said, "Come on, Brownie, let's have a look inside." But they didn't see anything because it had all been packed up and [was] ready to be flown out to Texas. He also said that one day all available men were grabbed and that they had to stand guard where a crashed disc had come down. Everything was being loaded onto trucks, and he couldn't understand why some of the trucks had ice or something in them. He did not understand what they wanted to keep cold. Him and another guy had to ride in the back of one of the trucks, and although they were told that they could get into a lot of trouble if they took in too much of what was happening, they had a quick look under the covering and saw two dead bodies, alien bodies. We really had to giggle at that bit. He said they were smaller than a normal man, about four feet, and had much larger heads than us, with slanted eyes, and that the bodies looked yellowish, a bit Asian-looking. We did not believe him when we were kids, but as I got older, I did kind of believe it.”


John S. Earman, Jr., who was with the State Department on Project Bloodstone, arranged immigration of barred Nazis into the United States in 1948. They were individuals utilized by the CIA as covert saboteurs and assassins (Men in Black). Primary sponsors for Bloodstone were Frank Wisner and Robert Lovett. Earman later advocated for MKULTRA (after 1953), “the effectiveness of the substances on individuals at all social levels, high and low, native American and foreign, is of great significance and testing has been performed on a variety of individuals within these categories.”[7]

In review of the death of James Forrestal in 1949, researcher David Martin points out that the official report did not conclude that Forrestal committed suicide. It concluded only that his fall caused his death and that no one in the U.S. Navy was responsible for it. The official report was obtained through the Freedom of Information Act in 2004. Martin published his findings in The Assassination of James Forrestal in 2019.

On 26 June 1961, President John F. Kennedy requested a review of intelligence operations from D/CIA Allen Dulles. Dulles replied on 5 November 1961 with, “The remaining cases have been classified for security reasons and are under review.” Kennedy fired Dulles and relied on the new D/CIA to provide an interim report on "high threat cases reviewed for the purpose of identification of bona fide as opposed to classified CIA and USAF sources... no later than February 1, 1964." Kennedy was killed November 22, 1963.


In July 1947, Thomas J. DuBose was Colonel (O17701) at Fort Worth AAF and in receipt of the Roswell material. DuBose was instructed by Maj. Gen. Clements McMullen to secure the Roswell material for inspection by Gen. Benjamin Chidlaw at Wright Field.[1]

IPU agent, Albert B. Collins was interviewed by researcher Timothy Cooper in 1990. The following year, Cooper was notified that Collins had died. Collins noted that a number of metallurgists were studying the Roswell material, some being out of Berkley. A list of metallurgy lab personnel out of Chicago was also produced on 17 July 1947.[8]

In September 1947, Hugh L. Dryden was assigned Director of Research at NACA, to become senior full-time officer Director of NACA by 1949. Dryden directed from Washington the activities of the Langley, Lewis, and Ames laboratories and the flight research stations at Edwards AFB and Wallops Island, Virginia. Under Dryden's leadership, NACA produced a vast body of new knowledge that made possible routine supersonic flight. Based on knowledge accumulated in research, NACA made it possible for the United States to proceed with assurance in the development of its ICBM program and manned satellites.[9]

In 1955, it was determined to establish a civilian agency version of NACA. Hugh L. Dryden helped to establish the new agency by participating in the drafting of the legislation and its defense before U.S. Congress. On 8 August 1955, President Eisenhower appointed Dr. Dryden as Deputy Administrator of NASA, a position he held under three Presidents until his death.[9]

On 23 July 1997, Lt. Col. Philip J. Corso (O1047930) was interviewed on the Art Bell show, Coast to Coast, after authoring the book The Day After Roswell. The following year, Corso dies of a heart attack. Corso advocated that the knowledge acquired from Roswell was of extraterrestrial technology.


In an effort to convince the American people that the material was ordinary, Lt. Gen. Roger Ramey and Col. Thomas DuBose (O17701) took pictures of weather balloon debris at Fort Worth AAF, and released the photos to the press.[1]

Maurice Ewing is misrepresented as conceiving Project Mogul. Ewing was an oceanographer who worked for the Navy to develop a method that used a microphone to detect long-distant explosions underwater, which was based on the hypothesis of a "sound channel" in the ocean.[10]


Having a swell time with cheap balloon material

Ewing was not a meteorologist and not on Project Mogul. Mogul was a project of the US Army Air Forces. All that the weather balloon project did, was attach a microphone to a high-altitude balloon. Mogul was conveniently short-lived from July 1947 to December 1948. “Though the principle on which the project was based was determined to be sound, there were questions concerning cost, security, and practicality.” [10] (especially for a microphone and cheap balloon material).

In July 1994, the Air Force Historical Research Agency attempted to explain the purpose of Project Mogul in a 1,000 page Roswell Report, stating: “MOGUL'S objective was to develop a long-range system capable of detecting Soviet nuclear detonations and ballistic missile launches.” This statement is a misrepresentation of its purpose.

It wasn't until the fall of 1948 that Soviet scientists managed to get their first nuclear reactor working; and the actual testing of their first nuclear device, “First Lightning” wasn't until 29 August 1949. The first threat of an ICMB - was the successful test launch of a Soviet R-7 on 21 August 1957, considered the world's first ICBM;[11] events that lead up to the Cuban Missile crisis.

US/Russian relations began to deteriorate in mid 1948 concerning the Berlin blockade, when the Russians took decisive moves to drive the Allies out in June 1948.[12] If Mogul's purpose concerned the Russians, the project should not have terminated December 1948.

What project Mogul actually is, was Roswell's cleanup that spanned the period of July 1947 to December 1948.
